By measuring the significance of all the values attributed to money in the present stage of capitalist development, the author of the gift to be found in rituals, in gratitude of the party, the exact amount of enhancement made by money, suspending the meeting and has a resizing of the movement and accumulation of wealth. The gift is a product of the superfluous and the consumer’s culture society has the purpose to remove the superfluous. The psychoanalytic work, not unlike the work of capitalism, has always been to do with the surplus, with something that is, that replaced, the original lack of lack (anxiety) with an excess of fantasy production (consumer’s culture). It's conceivable, from Lacan to Levinas, that the psychoanalytic session has to do with the other face recognition, and is inscribed in its essence, in a practice of welcome and hospitality of the other. The explicit statement in the need to pay the analyst becomes a ritual that opens the spontaneity, housing, hospitality aimed at making sense superfluous, to make reasonable the painful sensitive access to our origin.
